LibriVox recording of Little Journeys to the Homes of Famous Women by Elbert Hubbard.
Read in English by Mary J; Denise Nordell; MaryAnne; MariaS; Michele Eaton; Emily Maynard.
Elbert Hubbard describes the homes of authors, poets, social reformers and other prestigious people, reflecting on how their surroundings may have influenced them. These short essays are part biography and part pontification of Hubbard's opinion of the subject and their oeuvre.
In this volume he reflects on the lives of various powerful and influential women. Included are Elizabeth B. Browning, Madame Guyon, Harriet Martineau, Charlotte Bronte, Christina Rossetti, Rosa Bonheur, Madame De Stael, Elizabeth Fry, Mary Lamb, Jane Austen, Empress Josephine and Mary W. Shelley. There is also a short introduction by Hubbard's son, Elbert Hubbard II, written just after his father's death.
This is Volume 2 in a series of 14 volumes on Little Journeys to the Homes of the Great. (Summary by Lucy Perry)
